This week on NL Hafta, Abhinandan Sekhri, Raman Kirpal and Manisha Pande are joined by Rohan Venkat, deputy editor at Scroll, and Shivam Vij, columnist at Gulf News.

The conversation starts with Modi’s visit to the United States and how Indian TV news made it a topic of celebration. Rohan points out that it wasn’t “just an India-US story or about how the two countries met; the actual deal was the Quad summit.”

On the Congress crisis in Punjab, Shivam explains what’s happening, adding that the Congress is making so many “good moves” at once after a long time. The panel also talks about the violence during an eviction drive in Assam, and the horrifying footage of what happened.

This and a lot more, so tune in.

Why should I pay for news?

Independent journalism is not possible until you pitch in. We have already seen what happens in ad-funded models: Journalism takes a backseat and gets sacrificed at the altar of clicks and TRPs.

Stories cost perseverance, time and resources.
